mybodymybabymybirth Officially finished our hypnobirthing course this evening and I am feeling more empowered than ever about giving birth. It’s really easy to believe all the horror stories are the only examples, but we’ve been introduced to a completely new way of birthing. Massive thanks to the incredible Jo and Becca at @hypnobirthingcanterbury - if you’re pregnant and interested in finding out more about hypnobirthing, I would FULLY recommend taking a look. Even if you’re sceptical, it will completely change your outlook. Just beginning my third trimester and I’m so, so excited for my birth! •

.
Anyone use a TENS machine in labour? What’d you think? The Gate Control Theory says that there’s only a certain amount of pain or sensation input that can be processed at one time. So, with TENS, the plan is to flood the brain with harmless electrical impulses- as a result it doesn’t perceive contractions quite as much. Gate Theory works with low intensity pulsations, which are usually kept on between contractions. Alternatively, researchers think TENS might work to relieve pain in another way: Diffuse Noxious Inhibitory Control. This works by distracting the brain with another painful stimulus which in turn detracts from the contractions. These high intensity (but still harmless!) impulses are switched on during contractions. The Aurora Midwives have seen the TENS approach work wonderers for labouring clients, especially in early labour! What worked for you in early labour? . . . .

mybodymybabymybirth • N O T H I N G  C H A N G E S  I F  N O T H I N G  C H A N G E S •

I see clients receiving care from lots of different hospitals around the area. But... This Friday is the Maternity Voices meeting at Whiston hospital 🏥🏣 at 12.30pm.

A chance to discuss your experiences and views on the care you received or are currently receiving if you were/are booked at this hospital.

This is a FANTASTIC opportunity to shape maternity services for the better...to start the ball rolling for the changes you want to see for ✨your future self✨ if you have another baby, and for ✨other local women✨ too.

We each have a voice. But if we don't use it....✨Nothing will change✨. I'm sorry...but it's true. I wrote a post called • I N F O R M E D  C H O I C E • a couple of weeks ago. All about vaginal examinations/sweeps and women not feeling they had choice, control and power to say no. It was seen by nearly 8k people because so many people commented and shared it. Whilst I'm delighted...the downside is it clearly resonated with WAAAAAY more people than I'd have liked.

This needs to stop ❌❌❌ I appreciate that this maternity voices event could be very emotional for some and if this is not the right time for you to speak up, that is totally understandable. 
But we need to make a stand. Be heard.

And also share our fantastic experiences of what we'd like to see more of. Give thanks where it's well deserved.

If it helps, I...and a bunch of gorgeous gals I know 😘...Will be there...and we will support each other. 
If you want to come...send me a message and i will book you on.

Love Rachel xxx

mybodymybabymybirth Throwback today to our first baby bird back in October 2017. This is the same board we still wrote out names and weights on. How did we only have 23 babies in one month and now we have 32 on average so far this year. We have a special surprise coming at the end of this month, keep and eye out! -

Throwback today to our first baby bird back in October 2017. This is the same board we still wrote out names and weights on. How did we only have 23 babies in one month and now we have 32 on average so far this year. We have a special surprise coming at the end of this month, keep and eye out! - - - - - - - - #HomeBirth #HospitalBirth #WaterBirth #OutOfHospitalBirth #Midwives #Midwife #AuroraMidwifery #NaturalBirth #BellyBirth #Birth #ChoiceOfBirthplace #InformedChoice #BirthWithoutFear #EvidenceBasedBirth #BirthBecomesHer #WhyHomeBirthMatters #MyBodyMyBabyMyBirth #Doula #BirthPhotography #Calgary #YYC #CalgaryBirth #Baby #Postpartum #HomeVisit #TBT

mybodymybabymybirth Brothers being weighed in the same sling almost exactly 2 years apart. -
One of the central tenants of Midwifery care. You get to know people as your pregnancy progresses and we get to know you. One of the big bonuses of this is we try to accept you into care for any subsequent babies. Kimberley caught these boys, and Caroline caught their big sister Piper. Thank you for sharing Katie and Josh! 👣

mybodymybabymybirth I wish every pregnant and birthing person could feel like and actually be a powerhouse! Have the power and courage to do the right and most suitable choices for them without judgement from others. As a doula I’m helping people claim and stand in their own power. It really takes a lot to have a baby in this time and place as everyone seems to have an opinion. But it’s your body, your baby and your birth, so you decide! 💪🏻
.
Ei huolta, tällaisia potkuja ja kiipeilyjä ei tehdä synnytystanssissa, mutta OMAA VOIMAA kaivellaan esiin elokuun kurssilla. 💪🏻 Luvassa on uusi koreografia, jossa saa olla mukana asennetta ja vitunvoimaa, sellaista anteeksipyytelemättömyyttä ja oman kehon sopukoista kumpuavaa viisautta. Pehmeämpi ja keinuvampi Hyökyaalto saa nyt väistyä vaikka meillä monta hyvää hetkeä Antti Tuiskun kanssa on ollutkin. 😉
.
Tänään sunnuntaina on viimeinen päivä, kun voit ilmoittautua kurssille early bird -hintaan ja mukaan pääset verkkokaupan kautta www.holvi.com/shop/viekku, josta löydät myös lisätiedot, profiilin linkistä pääset perille.
.
Oispa siistiä nähdä sut Kätilötalolla to 15.8. jos olet raskaana, voit tulla millä raskausviikolla tahansa! 😘

mybodymybabymybirth Is there anything better than a #thirdbaby or is that just this #thirdbaby’s opinion? We absolutely love these gorgeous photos shared from Mihaela of her birth earlier this week.  I unfortunately misspelled her baby’s name on the board, it should be CATTLEYA. Simply stunning window into this family’s growth and love for one another -

This past week alone I've come across numerous conversations online from pregnant women saying things like... . . . "They won't allow me to go past my due date" . . "Because I'm classed as an older mum they've booked me in for an induction even though I don't want one." . . "I don't know what to do? They've told me I can't birth this way even though I want to and haven't offered any actual evidence as to why I shouldn't/can't." . . As a woman I can explicitly say that the hangover of this patriarchal period is still in full effect and sadly not exempt from the birthing room. We have a long way to go and yet things are changing. Awareness is shifting. Vocabulary is slowly evolving to one of asking and not assumed consent but it seems not fast enough. I urge you to remember Mamas that the final word lies with you about every single aspect of your care. There is no such thing as "allowed" when it comes to your body, your baby and your birth. That is a fundamental human right and protected by law under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights. . . Everything is merely an offering, a suggestion. You are bound by nothing and no-one to hand your body over even to well meaning care providers. I truly believe Mothers know best when it comes to birthing their babies. And with the right access to information are able to make excellent informed decisions that are best for themselves and their families at every step along the way. . . If you are struggling with your current care provider or simply unsure about your birthing options I urge you to grab a copy of this book or visit the #AIMS or #Birthrights website where you will find a tonne of excellent resources. Alternatively DM me, grab a cuppa and let's put the world to right. No more telling women what they can and can't do with their own bodies agreed?!! Awesome. Onward ✌🏽❤♀️👊🏽

mybodymybabymybirth It blows my mind. The lack of concern, support and information available for pelvic floor and core muscles after pregnancy and birth. .

We’re encouraged to get our bodies back. But actually we’re completely ruining them by moving and working out too quickly. .

I personally went to my gp when my menstrual cycle returned because my cervix felt heavy. It felt like my uterus might fall out. Seriously. The gp asked if I was peeing myself. And decided because I wasn’t I couldn’t get a subsidised referral. What the fuck world do we live in where birthing women don’t automatically get comprehensive pelvic floor physio therapy included in our health system?! .

This is why I include it in my packages. If the government won’t give it. I will. 👊
.
via @brookethedoula 
A B  R E H A B ⁣✨ via @thebellemethod | 
I was two weeks postpartum here, doing restorative breath work to activate the deep core and pelvic floor...Inhale wide into the diaphragm and release your pelvic floor, exhale to gently lift pelvic floor/“kegel” and wrap your core up and in. ✨⁣
⁣
If there was one thing I could say to all new mothers after birth, it would be to slow down and take time to neurologically reconnect to your deep core muscles. ⁣
Fact: the SLOWER you go at the beginning, and the more you reestablish your deep core connection, the stronger you will be for years to come. ⁣
The big problem with our health care system is that women are given zero guidance on how to rehab their bodies after birth.⁣
⁣
New mothers wait 6 to 8 weeks after birth, go in for their check up and are usually told they can “resume normal activities.” No pelvic floor assessments. No instructions other than “do kegels.” No real useful information. I liken this to getting an ACL knee repair, receiving no physical therapy, and then being told it’s ok to go for a run 6 weeks post op. ⁣
It’s B A N A N A S. 🍌🍌🍌⁣
⁣
We’ve got to RE-TRAIN the core after pregnancy before we can go back to regular training. And I’ll be honest, retraining is boring AF. It’s mentally versus physically hard. But it is SO IMPORTANT.

This week I’m going to post breech birth pictures. .
Breech birth accounts for about 3% of births. .
To me this makes it a variation of normal. .

Breech is actually common. Therefore shouldn’t we have trained providers and education in breech readily available and shouldn’t it be normalised as a variation of normal. .

This problem in my eyes arises from the patriarchal system and need for control. Fear and control. ... .

Repost @blissful.herbs ・・・ Fiona Hallinan and Jenny Blyth are national treasures and their knowledge is a gift to the birthing women of Australia. If you ever have a chance to attend one of their workshops about "Making Space in the Pelvis" - do it. . . And that is what this account is about: sharing and handing down the knowledge about safe, autonomous, physiological birthing. . . . What nugget of knowledge and wisdom would you offer to mothers approaching birth? Please share! I love to bequeath my experiences of undisturbed physiological third stage and placenta wisdom, based on what I learned from Gloria Lemay, Carla Hartley ("No hatting no patting no chatting no texting) and my own first midwife, @marycronin_homebirth_midwife - and of course, using herbs for ease and comfort. . Reposted from @fiona.hallinan - Sharing knowledge with women in your care gives them power💥 . . . As birthworkers (midwives/doulas/doctors) it's not ok for us to hold knowledge about birth and not share it with those who need it - the women. If we're ever going to change the culture of birth/the politics of birth/the interference in birth then women need this very important information about their magnificent pelvic goods. They have to know how to create space for their babies as those babies make the spiral journey to earth.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❓What is one piece of knowledge you shared with one of your patients/clients that they were extra thankful for?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⭐️PS This beautiful and thought-provoking photograph was entered into the 2019 Photo Contest run by @birthbecomesher ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It shows natural birth with those who matter - family, midwives & doulas.⠀⠀⠀

TRUE Midwifery care is slowly being eradicated. The Australian Medical Association has made a submission that all midwifery services must be obstetric lead. This means no more home birth, and no more true midwifery care will be available to you. No more choices. (Ahem and higher unnecessary cesarean and intervention rates may I add) ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This is not evidence based, and it is not in the best interest of all women. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Birth should be a physiological event that sometimes requires medicalised support. It should not and is NOT a medicalised event that sometimes happens physiologically. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Your rights to have the birth and care you desire is about to be stripped right from underneath you, your future children and even your future grandchildren. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It’s god damn time women have the rights they deserve, to choose the care and birth they do deeply want. But instead we are going in the other direction. The more medicalised birth is becoming the less safe it actually is. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So what can we do? I invite you to speak to your friends and family, use that  beautiful VOICE of yours to talk about this issue, bring awareness to your circle of women, and get the men you love to talk about it too, because it effects all of us.⁣⁣

mybodymybabymybirth Testing in pregnancy.
.

The underlying assumption is: pregnancy is a disorder, they expect things to go wrong, and so they look for things that are wrong. Then if they find them they have an excuse to ‘manage’ you. Label you high risk, when actually you may not be. Take options away from you.
.

You have the legal right to bodily autonomy and can decline any and all testing.
.

I personally hated the sound of the GD test, so I declined. I did however receive pressure from the GP I was with at the time to do the finger prick version. .

We (as birthing women) get so much pressure to do what makes the provider happy, what makes them comfortable, what makes them feel safe. .

But I want to ask you… Is drinking crappy shitting drinks full of literal poison (look into it), getting poked and prodded, and made to lie on your back etc etc… our comfort, happiness and safety is literally secondary.
Maternal mental health is a literal shit show.
The ‘healthy’ baby is to top priority.
The woman’s comfort is never even a consideration. Not in pregnancy, not in birth, not in postpartum.
.

I am here to change this shit! 
As the birthing woman you are MY top priority. I give ALL THE SHITS about YOUR comfort, YOUR mental health, YOUR CHOICES, WISHES, AND RIGHT TO BODILY AUTONOMY. .

If you agree, comment MY BODY, MY CHOICE

mybodymybabymybirth Body autonomy is WHY I entered this work.
.
Let me explain… .
I experienced extreme physical and psychological trauma when I was born, my birth (from my mother) involved interventions, lack of oxygen, and ultimately ended in immediate separation of me from her. I spent my first days in a oxygenated crib by myself with zero touch, zero breast, unable to hear anything familiar, touch anything familiar, complete isolation (a form of torture). For a newborn this cannot logically be processed, because the prefrontal cortex is not developed. So I experienced torture, which I didn’t understand and could never understand. The result of which is a limbic imprint that is really maladaptive.
. 
As an adult I don’t trust my body. I also hate the feeling of being out of control. 
I experience anxiety most days, and can get really worked up and experience panic. All surrounding a lack of perceived safety, and a fear that I will die, because my body is maladaptive. .
For me this results in not wanting to take medications (because they will kill me), not wanting surgical procedures (because they will kill me), and not wanting anyone touching my body without my expressed consent (because it’s so triggering). I like to feel completely in control. Which by the way is fucking impossible. But the more control I have, the better I feel. .
During pregnancy and birthing my children (I had a physiological miscarriage birth at home with my first, and a birth centre birth with my second child), I actually found the more people monitored me, the more anxious I got. The more people were trying to find something wrong with my body, the more I thought there was something wrong with my body. Until it got to a point where I knew I’d had enough and needed to exit the system. So I declined attending appointments. I was still anxious as fuck, but it wasn’t as bad. I actually started trusting that my body could do this. .
For my birth I needed no one touching me without consent, no one telling me what they thought, and no one really talking to me either. I basically needed the system to fuck off and let me birth. Cont in comments 👇
